    RQFC Details: I am a scholar doing research about the origin of the word "comet" in the names of the Comet Lodges throughout the US and worldwide. My grandfather was a 32nd degree Mason, but he passed away before I could ask him any information on this. I am not aware at this point, if hte comet is a common symbol in Freemasonary, but have noted that it is a common name for lodges. If anyone can give me any information on this, I would be most grateful. Thank you.
